Newsletter | #237 | What's On this WeekWelcome to this week's Melbourne events, exhibitions, sports and community guide for Tuesday to Monday, July 19 to 25.

This week... there's a twinkle in the eyes of Margaret and David as that much-loved celluloid extravaganza the Melbourne International Film Festival rolls back into town. Now in its 60th year, the festival goes all out with an enormous program of films and special events. If you're on a budget or lost for time, those yearning for some cinematic charm can also get their fix at the Gertrude Street Projection Festival in Fitzroy.

The Melbourne Cabaret Festival also kicks off this week to bring a good dose of cheeky theatre to South Melbourne, while the State of Design Festival shows off some of the most innovative and progressive designs from a diverse range of disciplines.

This week we also have an exciting offer for all the foodies out there with a special ticket offer for OnlyMelbourne readers keen to attend the upcoming culinary showcase, Taste of Melbourne. It'll help ease the also upcoming guilt of explaining those extra pounds gained every winter.

I'd Swear Someone Lunched Over My Grave!

Many people assume the first cemetery in Melbourne was the Old Melbourne Cemetery, whereas in fact it was Burial Hill, known today as Flagstaff Gardens.

These days, the park is the most highly used garden in Melbourne (per square metre) and a popular lunchtime oasis for workers in the city's northwest.

Willie, the child of James Goodman was the first person to buried in Melbourne, Port Phillip District. He was buried on 13th May 1836 at Burial Hill. This site was only used for about 6 burials.
